The Mets dropped the nightcap Saturday night in Houston, 4-1, and suffered a doubleheader sweep.
And to add injury to insult, Wilmer Flores left the game after fouling a ball off his face, with blood visible as he left the field.
The Mets actually held a 1-0 lead in this game. Juan Lagares led off the sixth inning with a triple and came around to score on a gift double awarded to Dominic Smith. It was a hard-hit ball and the fielder broke the wrong way and a last-minute leaping attempt ended up with the ball going off his glove. The Mets had a chance for more but Gavin Cecchini popped out to the catcher with the bases loaded to end the inning.
Seth Lugo held the Astros scoreless through five innings but it all came crashing down in the sixth. He did not get an out in the inning and ended up being charged with all four runs.
The Mets put a runner on base in both the seventh and eighth innings but were unable to score. The Mets are now 5-15 in their last 20 games.
